1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Construct the circumscribed nonagon (regular 9-sided polygon) of circle 1, the mid-point of one side on the upper intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of nonagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the circumscribed nonagon of circle 3, the mid-point of one side on the lower intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of nonagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 5 at the upper side. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the top of nonagon 4, passing through the adjacent righthand (and lefthand) angular point(s). | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 6 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 9 at the upper side. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 6. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the lower side. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 1 to the center of circle 6. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 1 to the lefthand intersection of circles 12 and 13. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 14, tangent to circle 7 at the far side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circle 11 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 16 at the lower side. | ||||

18. |
Copy circle 15 to the center of circle 6. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 15 to the righthand intersection of circles 17 and 18. | ||||

20. |
Construct the inscribed nonagon of circle 12, one angular point coincident with the center of circle 14. | ||||

21. |
Copy circles 14 and 15 eight times, to the other angular points of nonagon 20. | ||||

22. |
Construct the inscribed nonagon of circle 17, one angular point coincident with the center of circle 19. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 19 eight times, to the other angular points of nonagon 22. | ||||

24. |
Circles 5, 14, 15, 19, 21 and 23, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

25. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

26. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

27. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Hoden formation of 13-07-2013. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
